Apache Trail is great, quite the scenic drive, and it can lead you all the way to the Apache Gold Casino, another very scenic area. That's pretty far from Phoenix, though...
As far as "this time of the year" goes, I wouldn't sweat it. There has been an unusually strong storm blowing through the last few days (cold and rain), but average high temps in the coldest depths of winter here are near 70Â°.
And I'd skip the Canyon this time of year. It's very far (at least 4 hours each way) and damned cold. Don't even think about it. Unless you like sub-zero temps and snow, avoid the high country altogether.
